This volume introduces theory-to-practice based critical pedagogy grounded in Paulo Freire's scholarship to language and literacy learning settings. Chapters present authentic experiences of teacher-scholars, feature real-world examples and activities ready for implementation in the classroom and provide nuanced guidance for future teachers. The examples and activities from teacher-scholars place critical pedagogy at the heart of classroom contexts, and cover key topics, including place-based pedagogy, contemplative pedagogy, technology within the classroom, and translingual and multimodal paradigms. Chapters include further readings and discussion questions that challenge assumptions and promote deeper reflection, and can be modified for different teaching contexts. This cutting edge and practical volume is essential reading for students and scholars in TESOL and critical pedagogy.
